the question is it possible some of your sources were using you to justify the nsa, coverage of the nsa program or to kind of obscure human intelligence, assets, and saying it was signals intelligence? >> sure, first to fran's point it's totally true this is one of many and one piece of information in a broad collection that the u.s. intelligence community has engaged in. this meeting was significant according to officials and reports in both "the new york times" and lots of other outlets because it was where the vague discussion of impending attack was discussed and if you look at the embassy closings around the world it matches the people on the call. so you can sort of understand why the u.s. government took such a broad approach. as for it being motivations in taking the risk, i can't speak to that. some of them they take risks on. this seems to be a risk they didn't take. as far as some of the other reporters linking this to the nsa and snowden and what have you, it's important to point out the programs disclosed by snowden are not related to this particular communication particularly inte

the surveillance said it was fundamentally different than what they were led to believe as the nsa sweeped up thousands of e-mails from americans with absolutely no ties to terrorism. amid growing controversy comes more revelations the national security agency illegally collected tens of thousands of americans' e-mails. new declassified documents show the nsa collected nearly 60,000 communications a year for three years ending in to 11, it includes e-mails and other internet activity. the court also said the nsa misrepresented the scope of its effort. >> very disturbing, a national security agency has extraordinary surveillance capabilities and these tools are supposed to be directed toward adversaries in the united states, not toward the american public. >> reporter: the nsa says it collected the data by mistake. senior intelligence official telling reporters there was a "technological problem that could not be avoided rather than any overreach." meantime intelligence officials are denying a media report that the nsa sifts through and has access to 75% of online communications in the u.s. th

it is fast and furious, whether it is benghazi, whether it is the n.s.a., you are never getting information. >>steve: some of the president's critics are saying the only reason we have heard about this particular terror threat at our embassies and diplomatic posts throughout the arab world is because in past administrations in the bush years, they never would have made such a big deal out of it. but right now the subtle message is, look, we were able to listen to this particular conversation between al-zawahiri and the guy who runs al qaeda in the arabian peninsula through the n.s.a. program so folks don't feel bad about the n.s.a. program. >> we'll wait and see what happens with this. if there is nothing that happens, we'll have to say you blew contacts, you blew sources and methods. was it to distract us from other issues. you know what makes me maddest of all? where's the media? when i was in the nixon administration, if the nixon administration had not turned over documents, you would have heard about it from every media source. they would have been screaming and crying. in this case th
